  • Is there any harm/benefit to buying a domain a few weeks before you post content?
    29 March 2020

    Hi! I’m pondering starting my second website to help supplement my income after my first site has done fairly well.

    However, do to some things going on in my life, I won’t be able to start this project for another few weeks. I’m wondering if there would be any benefit (or hard) to buying the domain ahead of time, without posting any content to it?

    Thanks for the advice in advance!

  • Page title and H1 tag = what do you do?
    29 March 2020

    I have a blog where I have set the blog titles to be H1 tags.

    I also have it set so the blog title is the page title plus the blogs name. ( Blog Title |MyBlogName )

    So they are nearly the same.

    I did this because I want to have the blog title which usually is a main question to be in a H1 tag and then all the sub-headers breaking the question down in H2s.

    What do you think of this?

    How do you do it?

  • Link Building Via Video for Bloggers
    29 March 2020

    Hey, I posted earlier about a method I'd like to try out and now I've got some time to do so I'll explain it in more detail.

    Link building has always been difficult or expensive. This method isn't about paying big prices or creating huge content that might get links.

    Basically, find a number of bloggers in your niche (will probably be more effective with medium DA or relatively new blogs). When you have a list of bloggers, look through their posts to see if you can find any that can be improved by adding a video description. If the posts don't have some kind of video already, this will apply to most of them.

    Then, when you have a post in mind, reach out to the blogger to offer to create a video for them which summarises the post - explain that it's theirs to put on the page and Youtube, Facebook.

    If they accept, either make the video if you have the software or the skills, or find a video editor on Fiverr to do it.

    Once it's done and they're happy with it, simply ask them to drop a thank you with a link back to your site and see if there's any room to manoevre in terms of being able to drop a link elsewhere and to a certain page instead.

    Most bloggers receive so many generic emails in a day - I think this method can be a great way to differentiate and look more personal.

    I've not been involved with SEO for a while as I concentrate on local advertising - which includes editing videos, but the one time I did this it worked really well.

    I know a lot of people struggle with their link building, and because of the current climate I am happy to try this for some of you. As it's still a risk I'll only charge once the link is placed and we're all happy.

    If any of you would like to give this a try yourselves, keep me posted on how it works.

    Hope everyone's keeping safe.

  • Little Ones Online More? Here Are 10 Basics To Keep Them Safe
    28 March 2020

    Online safety conversations look dramatically different depending on the age and stage of your child. For very young children, toddlers through elementary school, parents have a golden opportunity to lay the foundations that will shape a child’s digital perspectives and behaviors for a lifetime.

    One way to keep younger children safe online is simply to begin. How early, you might ask? From the day they arrive. If you’ve ever seen a four-month-old reach for mommy’s smartphone only to cry when mommy takes it away, it’s clear the baby has observed the culture around him. He knows that the shiny toy that hums is one of mommy’s favorite things. It has the power to capture and hold her attention. It makes her laugh, cry, and influence her routine and emotions.

    Protecting kids online

    Modeling balanced screen habits is a powerful way to influence behavior as toddlers begin to discover television, apps, interactive toys, and online learning sites. At this stage, intentional steps such as limiting screen time, reviewing content, and talking with your little one in simple concepts about the images and stories encounter will help grow their digital IQs. Note: The American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) recommends keeping all screens turned off around babies and toddlers younger than 24 months.

    Move With The Curve

    As kids move into elementary school, technology is often part of the learning experience. Some children (depending on the household) may even own smartphones. Because the integration of technology begins to increase, this stage requires parents to move with the curve of a child’s online safety needs. Priorities: Securing devices kids take to school, setting filters on web browsers, limiting screen and gaming time, encouraging physical activity and hobbies, and having consistent, age-appropriate conversations about the online world is more important than ever.

    10 Online Safety Basics for Younger Children
    1. Keep devices in a common area. By locating all computers, TVs, and devices in a common area, parents can easily monitor a child’s online activity. This simple step also helps kids get used to parental monitoring and responsible digital behavior.
    2. Follow family device rules. Establish family ground rules for technology use and repeat them to your younger children. Every child’s maturity and self-control level is different. If you think your child’s connection with his or her technology begins to tip toward the unhealthy, make adjustments as you go. If you set a 20-minute game time limit, be ready to enforce it consistently. In our experience, inconsistency in enforcing technology rules when kids are young is one of the biggest regrets among parents of teens.
    3. Introduce password security. As we accumulate IoT devices, it’s common for younger children to interact with home assistants, SmartTVs, digital toys, and online games. When password prompts come up on a login screen, explain to your child what you are doing (use your password) and why passwords are necessary. Get into the habit of using 2-factor authentication for passwords and locking your device home screens with a pin code.
    4. Filter content. Younger kids accept content at face value and don’t have the critical thinking skills process information or to be alone online. If you allow younger kids online, consider sitting with them, and explaining the content in front of them. To avoid the chance of your child encountering inappropriate content by mistake, consider adding parental control software to family devices.
    5. Start the privacy conversation. Kids of all ages understand the word “mine.” As your kids interact with the online in the early years, explain why it’s essential to keep their name, picture, family member names, school name, and address private.
    6. Introduce VPN use early. Browsing on a secure network (VPN, Virtual Private Network) from an early age reinforces the concept of privacy online. Explain to your child how the private encryption “tunnel” your content (searches, activity, messages) passes through and how that keeps other people from grabbing your private information. Even a text conversation with Grandma could accidentally give away information.
    7. Explain the concept of scams. When age-appropriate, explain how (and why) some people online try to trick you into clicking a box or a link to learn more about you. Discuss why you shouldn’t click on pop-up ads, hyperlinks, and messages that could contain malware or phishing links. To guard family devices against malicious links, consider free tools like Web Advisor.
    8. Discuss digital stranger danger. When you open a web browser, you open your home to content and people you don’t know. Children of any age can inadvertently run into digital danger zones. Teach young children not to talk to a stranger online or send (or share) photos with others. It’s also a good idea to cover the camera lens on your laptop or tablet, advise children to never stay on a website you would not approve of, and to never download or click a link without asking your permission.
    9. Introduce safe social networking. Online communities are here to stay, so consider starting social network safety talks early. Several kid-friendly browsers, apps, and social networks exist online for younger kids and are perfect for teaching them about privacy settings, how to collaborate and interact with others online.
    10. Start talking. Keep talking. Of all the principles we’ve featured, we’ve saved the best for last. Creating an open, trusting dialogue with your child is your #1 security tool in keeping your child safe online today and into the future.

    While schools introduce kids to internet safety basics to protect kids online and do well to refresh concepts along the way, it’s the consistent, intentional work of parents that shape the values and skills a child needs to navigate the online world. By putting some of these foundational principles in place early and committing to consistent follow-through, it’s possible to maintain critical influence as your children move into different phases of their digital lives.

  • Critical buffer overflow in CODESYS allows remote code execution
    28 March 2020
    Experts discovered an easily exploitable heap-based buffer overflow flaw, tracked as CVE-2020-10245, that exists in the CODESYS web server.

    A critical heap-based buffer overflow flaw in a web server for the CODESYS automation software for engineering control systems could be exploited by a remote, unauthenticated attacker to crash a server or execute arbitrary code.

    CODESYS is a software platform, developed by the German company Smart Software Solutions, used in the automation industry for programming controller applications.

    The CODESYS web server is used by the CODESYS WebVisu to display CODESYS visualization screens in a common web browser.

    The flaw tracked as CVE-2020-10245 is easy to exploit, it received a severity rate of 10 out of 10 on the CVSS v.2. A heap overflow condition is a type of buffer overflow, where a heap portion of memory could be overwritten with the content exceeding a buffer. Usually,the buffer was allocated using a routine such as malloc().

    “Specific crafted requests may cause a heap-based buffer overflow. Further on this could crash the web server, lead to a denial-of-service condition or may be utilized for remote code execution.” reads the advisory published by CODESYS.

    “Specific crafted requests may cause a heap-based buffer overflow. Further on this could crash the web server, lead to a denial-of-service condition or may be utilized for remote code execution. As the webserver is part of the CODESYS runtime system, this may result in unforeseen behavior of the complete runtime system. ”

    The issue resides in the CmpWebServerHandlerV3.dll (file version library that doesn’t properly validate user-supplied data sent to the web server URL endpoint.

    “A heap overflow vulnerability exists in CmpWebServerHandlerV3.dll (file version due to improper validation of user-supplied data sent to the CODESYS V3 web server URL endpoint /WebVisuV3.” reads the analysis published by Tenable.

    “The flaw is due to the fact that the MemGCGetSize function adds 0x5c bytes to the requested allocation size during memory allocation operation”

    An attacker could exploit the flaw by requesting a very large memory allocation size via a WEB_CLIENT_OPENCONNECTION message sent to the CmpWebServerHandlerV3 component.

    “An unauthenticated, remote attacker can request a very large memory allocation size (i.e., 0xffffffff) via a WEB_CLIENT_OPENCONNECTION message sent to the CmpWebServerHandlerV3 component: |foo|-1|true|” continues the analysis.

    “The CmpWebServerHandlerV3 component (when in state 0) attempts to allocate -1 (0xffffffff) bytes for the communication buffer. When the SysMemAllocData function is called, the memory allocation size gets overflowed and a small (0xffffffff + 0x5c = 0x5b) heap buffer is actually allocated.”

    The experts also published a PoC exploit code that can be used to terminate a 32-bit CODESYSControlService.exe.

    The flaw affects all versions of CODESYS V3 runtime systems containing the web server prior V3.5.15.40, a fix is included in version V3.5.15.40.

  • Hackers target zero-day flaws in enterprise Draytek network devices
    28 March 2020
    Experts from Qihoo 360’s NetLab recently spotted two zero-day campaigns targeting DrayTek enterprise-grade networking devices.

    Since December 2019, researchers from Qihoo 360 observed two different attack groups that are employing two zero-days exploits to take over DrayTek enterprise routers to eavesdrop on FTP and email traffic inside corporate networks.

    While Netlab360 has found about ~100,000 devices online, independent researchers speculate the number could be higher.

    #0-day Since 2019-12-04 08:22:29 (UTC), we have been witnessing ongoing 0 day attack targeting a network CPE vendor (not the big players, but there are about ~100,000 devices online according to public available data). The attacker is snooping on port 21,25,143,110 (1/2)

    — 360 Netlab (@360Netlab) December 25, 2019

    #0-day And sending the captured files to a receiver at Due to the real impact here, we suggest reader looking for anything going to that IP on their network and take necessary actions. (2/2)

    — 360 Netlab (@360Netlab) December 25, 2019

    “From December 4, 2019, 360Netlab Threat Detection System has observed two different attack groups using two 0-day vulnerabilities of DrayTek Vigor enterprise routers and switch devices to conduct a series of attacks, including eavesdropping on device’s network traffic, running SSH services on high ports, creating system backdoor accounts, and even creating a specific Malicious Web Session backdoor.” reads the report published by Qihoo 360.

    The two critical remote command injection vulnerabilities tracked as CVE-2020-8515 affect DrayTek Vigor network devices, including enterprise switches, routers, load-balancers, and VPN gateway.

    On February 10, 2020, the Taiwanese manufacturer DrayTek issued a security bulletin to address the vulnerability with the release of the firmware program 1.5.1.

    “On Jan 30th we became aware of a possible exploit of the Vigor2960/3900/300B related to the WebUI. It was identified during testing and reported to us. On the 6th Feb, we released an updated firmware to address this issue.” reads the security bulletin.

    “You should upgrade as soon as possible to 1.5.1 firmware or later. If you have remote access enabled on your router, disable it if you don’t need it, and use an access control list if possible. If you have not updated the firmware yet, disable remote access (admin) and SSL VPN. The ACL does not apply to SSL VPN connections (Port 443) so you should also temporarily disable SSL VPN until you have updated the firmware.

    The issue only affects the Vigor 3900 / 2960 / 300B and is not known to affect any other DrayTek products.”

    The attacks are still ongoing, hackers are attempting to compromise publicly exposed DrayTek enterprise switches, Vigor 2960, 3900, 300B devices that haven’t yet been patched.

    The two zero-day vulnerability command injection points are keyPath and rtick, which are located in the /www/cgi-bin/mainfunction.cgi, and the corresponding Web Server program is /usr/sbin/lighttpd.

    According to the experts, while the first group of hackers exploited the issues to spy on the network traffic.

    The second group of hackers employed the rtick command injection vulnerability to:

    • create 2 sets of Web Session backdoors that never expires in the file /var/session.json;
    • create SSH backdoors on TCP / 22335 and TCP / 32459;
    • add a system backdoor account wuwuhanhan:caonimuqin.

    Experts pointed out that even after reinstalling the firmware update, it won’t remove backdoor accounts created by attackers.

    “We recommend that DrayTek Vigor users check and update their firmwares in a timely manner, and check whether there is a tcpdump process, SSH backdoor account, Web Session backdoor, etc on their systems.” continues the experts.

    “We recommend the following IoCs to be monitored and blocked on the networks where it is applicable.”

    Experts published a list of Indicators of Compromise (IoCs) that could be checked to determine whether a device has been compromised.

    The following firmware versions are impacted:

    • Vigor2960 < v1.5.1
    • Vigor300B < v1.5.1
    • Vigor3900 < v1.5.1
    • VigorSwitch20P2121 <= v2.3.2
    • VigorSwitch20G1280 <= v2.3.2
    • VigorSwitch20P1280 <= v2.3.2
    • VigorSwitch20G2280 <= v2.3.2
    • VigorSwitch20P2280 <= v2.3.2

    Technical details on the vulnerabilities have been described here by an independent researcher.
